    About this property

    • Ringshall End has a superb location close to Little Gaddesden within the Chilterns AONB. The house sits well back from the road, within a plot which extends to about 12.4 acres and offers a superb choice for those who enjoy an outdoor lifestyle and even offers a pond for "wild" swimming. It borders the Ashridge Estate, which extends to over 5000 acres and includes the largest area of woodland managed by the National Trust and has over 30 miles of trails and paths available for walking. The estate also includes the Bridgewater Monument, a 108 ft tower built in 1832 which offer fine far reaching views.

      The property consists of two separate dwellings, a large period house and a smaller cottage. There is great scope for improvement and extension and the house has previously had planning consent granted for a side story extension which would have linked the two buildings and for a stable block with vehicular access.

      The main house offers well proportioned accommodation with lovely views from every window. A large central hallway gives access to a dual aspect sitting room with fireplace, there is a further family room, dining room and kitchen with Aga. There is also a scullery, boot room and guest cloakroom. The first floor has a larger main bedroom with en suite bathroom, four further bedroom and two bath/shower rooms.

      Honeysuckle Cottage is located near the house and comprises bedroom and bathroom and two receptions.

      The house is well screened from the road and is approached through electric gate up a long driveway past the gardens, tepee and swimming pond. The grounds a a delight and offer scope for both leisure activities, equestrian use or even as a small holding. To the rear there is a stable and wood store and an impressive tree house with zipwire. The rest of the grounds comprise further paddock areas and a bluebell wood.
